The Dragon and the Zeal of the Lord
Note: Even though this word was given for California,
we all can apply them to our lives wherever we are, and see the same results!
California Trip Notes – April, 2 -2013
The dates of my trip are April 4-6, 2013
As we were worshipping, I saw many angels descend carrying crystal bricks. They were coming to build God’s Habitation, and to accelerate it’s process unto completion. Some of the angels carried the crystal clear bricks, while some carried masonry looking tools, and some angels had other unusual building implements in their hands. The Lord has burned out the old growth and cleared away the tares, spiritual oppositions, and hindrances. Now, It was a time to build new vision, to plant fresh faith, and to establish the next phase of the corporate building program that God has in process here in California.
I saw several angels whose task was as “Whirlwinds of Preparation.” They cleared the way for fresh Implementation of God’s Purposes. Every high, and haughty thing that lifted itself up against the Lord or His People was now going to be brought down.
The Lord said that it was found in Isaiah 4:1-6.
“1And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread and provide our own apparel; only let us be called by your name to take away our reproach [of being unmarried]. 2 In that day the Branch of the Lord shall be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land shall be excellent and lovely to those of Israel who have escaped. 3 And he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy, everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem and for eternal life, 4 After the Lord has washed away the [moral] filth of the daughters of Zion [pride, vanity, haughtiness] and has purged the bloodstains of Jerusalem from the midst of it by the spirit and blast of judgment and by the spirit and blast of burning and sifting. 5 And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection). 6 And there shall be a pavilion for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain.”
The 7 women: The Church The 1 man: Jesus Christ
3 Seasons of Proving, Sifting, and Purging of soul and flesh, for great growth and expansion.
3 Years of Preparation, to develop Maturity, and instill Readiness for emergence.
3 Phases of removal and cleansing of the old things: Pride, Vanity, Haughtiness.
The Spirit and Blast of Judgment 2010
The Spirit and Blast of Burning 2011
The Spirit and Blast of Sifting 2012
California went through 3 years of Preparation for the release of Mature Workers who will now rise up to flow together in 2013. It is a Time for God’s People to build, to plant, to erect, and to establish the Vision God has given to them for their areas.
A Divine Canopy and Defense and Divine Love would begin to be erected over His People who have been burned over, and burned out. A new suppleness, vitality, and corporate nourishment would begin to flow through all who joined together.
Then the Lord took me to Nehemiah 4:1-6.
“1 But when Sanballat heard that we were building the wall, he was angry and in a great rage, and he ridiculed the Jews. 2 And he said before his brethren and the army of Samaria, What are these feeble Jews doing? Will they restore things [at will and by themselves]? Will they [try to bribe their God] with sacrifices? Will they finish up in a day? Will they revive the stones out of the heaps of rubbish, seeing they are burned? 3 Now Tobiah the Ammonite was near him, and he said, What they build — if a fox climbs upon it, he will break down their stone wall. 4 [And Nehemiah prayed] Hear, O our God, for we are despised. Turn their taunts upon their own heads, and give them for a prey in a land of their captivity. 5 Cover not their iniquity and let not their sin be blotted out before You, for they have vexed [with alarm] the builders and provoked You. 6 So we built the wall, and all [of it] was joined together to half its height, for the people had a heart and mind to work.
California has faced the HOLY BURN, now she will enter the SEASON of her FULL TURN.
The Lord said that what was spoken forth and prophetically released in 2009, was sown as a seed into the ground. It then laid fallow in the soil of their hearts, and fermented as wine, or steeped till sincere faith was fully ripened. Then as the faith of the People had been fully tested, and the faithful stood during the 3 years of tests, the Father opened up the 2013 season with the phase of birthing forth of the ripened seeds.
January through March, was the closing of all that remained. All of the old programs, the reliance upon natural transportations and worldly financial methods, that we had previously trusted in, relied upon, and utilized, were now being removed by the Lord. New avenues, resources, and innovations would now begin to be unveiled to us as of April 1st.
During these first six days of April, the 1st through the 6th, the Lord will judge the things that have defied the Word of the Lord, whether it be within people or demonic in source. 6 is the number of man. Nothing inspired of this earth or that is empowered by it, would tap into the heavenly things, or use the coming heavenly implements, or would bring forth the new innovations about to be revealed.
April comes from the Latin “Aprillus” and means “to open” or “opening”. Blossoms opening, the month of rebirth and hope.
Hebrews 6:19 “[Now] we have this [hope] as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whoever steps out upon it — a hope] that reaches farther and enters into [the very certainty of the Presence] within the veil..”
We are now entering a TURN into a New Direction, and an ACCELERATION for Corporate Faithfulness and Fruitfulness.
A new release of Corporate Faith is now flowing into California to now co-labor together to stand and build, till they fulfill their mandates. The Lord was bringing a higher synchronization and alignment to those things that have been bombarded by the enemy to keep them from functioning at full capability. This divine synchronization would cause a greater clarity in their sight and a deeper sensitivity to the Heart of the Father, which would enable them to supersede all that has been done up till now.
1. New Strategies for Operation and Function
2. New Synchronizations of Areas and Hubs for greater impact
3. New Resonations of God’s Spirit flowing would manifest among them to bring forth life
The Dragon and the Roots of Rebellion
During the worship service last night, on April 3rd, I saw a massive door of white light extend from the floor right before me and it’s top went into the roof. It was as wide as the stage. I sat right at its face. The Lord said that he was opening a door of access for the saints here to enter into higher revelation and wisdom to accomplish what the Lord desires for them to in this area. I knew there was also a Brass Gate here that they were to destroy, but it would only be done by going through this new door.
Revelations 4:1 “After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice which I had heard addressing me like [the calling of] a war trumpet said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place in the future.”
On April 4th, I had a vision of the things that empowered the Brass Gate and operated within it.
In the vision, I saw into the Spirit Realm under the California Bay area in which we are staying in this week. I saw underneath the ground of the San Francisco areas that there was a spiritual cavern-like place where a red dragon lives. He moves freely back and forth in this cavern under the ground at his will. At the ceiling of this cavern, I can see the underlying root system of the Bay areas growth above me. Whenever any part of the Bay area begins to take root, or extend their roots downwards, the dragon would fly over to that area underneath and blast those roots below with fire from his mouth, and the roots above would begin to die.
This dragon controlled the spiritual growth of the area, and had power to destroy spiritual growth because of areas of disobedience and rebellion that still function in the church. There was a constant battle going on over the area between the saints and the dragon for the territory and for spiritual fruitfulness. The Lord is revealing this entity so that the saints here can now rise up, and overcome the disobedience and rebellion that empowers the dragon to prevail against them, and also so the saints here can destroy this dragon’s platform of authority, and ultimately drive it out. The land here will then explode with new life as righteousness and faithfulness is sown into it again. The establishing of a new covenant with the Lord will enforce the new authority of the saints here, in which life can then function again and restore truth and spiritual vitality, and heal all of the remaining seeds of death and destruction that are sown in the ground by default.
Above the ground, there was a demonic fog of witchcraft that would fly and sit over the areas of disobedience and rebellion and it choked the vision of the people to keep them from believing the Promises of the Word, and from acting upon them in faith. If any areas began to release faith, a light would begin to shine upwards, and the demonic cloud of witchcraft would fly over to it and begin to war over the people of light with a barrage of thoughts of disobedience and fear and unbelief to cause them to doubt the promises they were opening up in their areas, and they would succumb to the pressures of the battle, and their light would then wane, and the cloud would begin to choke their faith till it fell into disobedience and they would sit back down. Their fruit they established above would then die below. The cloud above and the dragon below operated together to maintain the spiritual and natural brokenness of the region.
The Lord said it was found within Ephesians 5:
Ephesians 5:5-6 “For be sure of this: that no person practicing sexual vice or impurity in thought or in life, or one who is covetous [who has lustful desire for the property of others and is greedy for gain] — for he [in effect] is an idolater — has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no one delude and deceive you with empty excuses and groundless arguments [for these sins], for through these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of rebellion and disobedience.
The Lord said that this could also be found within Leviticus 26:
“14 But if you will not hearken to Me and will not do all these commandments, 15 And if you spurn and despise My statutes, and if your soul despises and rejects My ordinances, so that you will not do all My commandments, but break My covenant, 16 I will do this: I will appoint over you [sudden] terror (trembling, trouble), even consumption and fever that consume and waste the eyes and make the [physical] life pine away. You shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17 I [the Lord] will set My face against you and you shall be defeated and slain before your enemies; they who hate you shall rule over you; you shall flee when no one pursues you. 18 And if in spite of all this you still will not listen and be obedient to Me, then I will chastise and discipline you seven times more for your sins. 19 And I will break and humble your pride in your power, and I will make your heavens as iron [yielding no answer, no blessing, no rain] and your earth [as sterile] as brass. 20 And your strength shall be spent in vain, for your land shall not yield its increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.”
Sin and rebellion brings natural and spiritual famine and a lack of natural and spiritual rain. But faith and obedience brings light, life, and power!
Acts 6:7-8 “And the message of God kept on spreading, and the number of disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem; and [besides] a large number of the priests were obedient to the faith [in Jesus as the Messiah, through Whom is obtained eternal salvation in the Kingdom of God]. 8 Now Stephen, full of grace (divine blessing and favor) and power (strength and ability) worked great wonders and signs (miracles) among the people.”
Arthur was told by God in 1930 that he would see this revival before he died. He is now 101 in 2013.
“THERE SHALL COME A BREATH – AND THE BREATH SHALL BRING THE WIND – AND THE WIND SHALL BRING THE RAIN – AND THE RAIN SHALL BRING THE FLOODS – AND FLOODS AND FLOODS AND THE FLOODS – SHALL BRING THE TORRENTS AND TORRENTS AND TORRENTS. SO SHALL THEY BE SAVED LIKE FALLING LEAVES FROM THE MIGHTY OAKS SWEPT BY A HURRICANE IN A GREAT FOREST. ARMS AND LEGS SHALL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN AND THERE SHALL BE NO EBB.”
Bob Jones said the FLOODS are movements of the Lord, the Torrents have to do with the end time revival of a billion people which the Lord told Bob about in 1975. A Torrent is a river in extreme flood that cannot be stopped.
The parallel of a word being given to a man who is very old, who is told he won’t die before the word comes to pass, is the story of Simeon in the gospel of Luke, chapter 2.
Luke 2:25-31 “Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout [cautiously and carefully observing the divine Law], and looking for the Consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been divinely revealed (communicated) to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 27 And prompted by the [Holy] Spirit, he came into the temple [enclosure]; and when the parents brought in the little child Jesus to do for Him what was customary according to the Law, 28 [Simeon] took Him up in his arms and praised and thanked God and said, 29 And now, Lord, You are releasing Your servant to depart (leave this world) in peace, according to Your word. 30 For with my [own] eyes I have seen Your Salvation, 31 Which You have ordained and prepared before (in the presence of) all peoples, 32 A Light for revelation to the Gentiles [to disclose what was before unknown] and [to bring] praise and honor and glory to Your people Israel.”
The Key to Harvest is TIMING.
God sees that you are mature enough to now deal with the stronger demonic roots that kill your new shoots.
Isaiah 4:5 “And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection).”
The Remedy: The Arm of the Lord and the Cloak of Zeal
Judges 6:1-6 “1 But the Israelites did evil in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord gave them into the hand of Midian for seven years. 2 And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel. Because of Midian the Israelites made themselves the dens which are in the mountains and the caves and the strongholds. 3 For whenever Israel had sown their seed, the Midianites and the Amalekites and the people of the east came up against them. 4 They would encamp against them and destroy the crops as far as Gaza and leave no nourishment for Israel, and no ox or sheep or donkey. 5 For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came like locusts for multitude; both they and their camels could not be counted. So they wasted the land as they entered it. 6 And Israel was greatly impoverished because of the Midianites, and the Israelites cried to the Lord.”
Judges 6:7-16, 34 “7 And when they cried to the Lord because of Midian, 8 The Lord sent a prophet to the Israelites, who said to them, Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, I brought you up from Egypt and brought you forth out of the house of bondage. 9 And I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians and out of the hand of all who oppressed you, and drove them out from before you and gave you their land. 10 And I said to you, I am the Lord your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But you have not obeyed My voice. 11 Now the Angel of the Lord came and sat under the oak (terebinth) at Ophrah, which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, and his son Gideon was beating wheat in the winepress to hide it from the Midianites. 12 And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him and said to him, The Lord is with you, you mighty man of [fearless] courage. 13 And Gideon said to him, O sir, if the Lord is with us, why is all this befallen us? And where are all His wondrous works of which our fathers told us, saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? But now the Lord has forsaken us and given us into the hand of Midian. 14 The Lord turned to him and said, Go in this your might, and you shall save Israel from the hand of Midian. Have I not sent you? 15 Gideon said to Him, Oh Lord, how can I deliver Israel? Behold, my clan is the poorest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house. 16 The Lord said to him, Surely I will be with you, and you shall smite the Midianites as one man ….. 34 But the Spirit of the Lord clothed Gideon with Himself and took possession of him, and he blew a trumpet, and [the clan of] Abiezer was gathered to him.
Psalms 44:1-4 “1 We have heard with our ears, O God; our fathers have told us [what] work You did in their days, in the days of old. 2 You drove out the nations with Your hand and it was Your power that gave [Israel] a home by rooting out the [heathen] peoples, but [Israel] You spread out. 3 For they got not the land [of Canaan] in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them; but Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your countenance [did it], because You were favorable toward and did delight in them. 4 You are my King, O God; command victories and deliverance for Jacob (Israel).”
The Lord roots out the dragon from below that destroys the seed from below, and drives out the witchcraft that operates from above. The Lord then enables the saints to flourish from above and to spread outwards again. Neither the dragon, nor the witchcraft clouds can stand against the arm of the Lord of Hosts.
Isaiah 59:15-19 “15 Yes, truth is lacking, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. And the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. 16 And He saw that there was no man and wondered that there was no intercessor [no one to intervene on behalf of truth and right]; therefore His own arm brought Him victory, and His own righteousness [having the Spirit without measure] sustained Him. 17 For [the Lord] put on righteousness as a breastplate or coat of mail, and salvation as a helmet upon His head; He put on garments of vengeance for clothing and was clad with zeal [and furious divine jealousy] as a cloak. 18 According as their deeds deserve, so will He repay wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; on the foreign islands and coastlands He will make compensation. 19 So [as the result of the Messiah’s intervention] they shall [reverently] fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives].”
Matthew 11:12 “And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize — a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion].”
The Lord and His Fishing Vest
The Lord was wearing a fishing vest with many pockets on it. Each pocket was representing a group of people that were moving in the Zeal of the Lord. Jesus began to open the pockets one by one, in a sequential pattern of release, so that each release built upon the next group’s release, which increased the power and momentum, until enough was released in California to fully defeat and drive out the dragon and destroy his works. Each pocket did their part, until it was all broken, and then it spread as a wave over them all.
1 Samuel 17:48 TM “That roused the Philistine, and he started toward David. David took off from the front line, running toward the Philistine . David reached into his pocket for a stone, slung it, and hit the Philistine hard in the forehead, embedding the stone deeply. The Philistine crashed, face down in the dirt.”
